Hi Guys,

Today for show and tell I have brought along my new guitar! It's been worked on for serveral month's, and now it is finally done. It's a custom build model, build by a british guitar builder, who I befriended on a Jam session a year back. The design, colors and hardware were selected by my own ideas and wishes. I chose black because Iam a black and white guitar kinda guy, and since I already have a white telecaster, this fits in just perfectly wink.gif.

Some Technical aspects:

- The neck is of the same length and thickness as a standard gibson model.
- The neck runs all the way trough the body, instead of being bolted or... (dunno what its called in english.. ) glued? tongue.gif This provides exelent sustain.
- It has a chrome bridge from Goto, no tremmelo (not really into that stuff yet).
- It has locks on the tuning pegs, wich makes it easy for newbzzz like myself who cannot change their own strings decently rolleyes.gif
- It has two Semor Duncon Hot rodded Jazz humbuckers, great for both clean and jazzy, as heavily distorted metal.
- It has a series of planetshaped pearlmour inlayed into the neck, with has many diffrent colors.
- furthermore it has the standard podmeters(2), Gibson selectorswitch, and Straplocks
- All hardware is chromed (the jack input also tongue.gif)
- It weighs just over 2,5 Kg, wich is relatively light for a guitar.
- I don't really know how all the woods used are called in english, but the body is Cherry wood or something like that. In Holland we call it "Kersenhout" huh.gif. The neck would be "maple".

Well that's about it. Im not going to far in technical detail like the exact measurements and stuff like that, cause It would be boring... for me that is... dry.gif

Picture time!

Thanks guys! Really appreciate the compliments! I will be buying some decent recording gear for my PC. So I will be posting some audioclips soon!

I have to get used to the guitar still, because the neck is very difrent from a telecaster (wich I have been playing on for most of my time as a guitarist), but it feels great, and the phrasing is much more fluid biggrin.gif.
@Joruus
Yes I came up with the Idea smile.gif. Some little corrections were added to the builder, but it's mostly still the same as my original design!

I like the fretboard inlay very much! The body too, though I'm not too much of a fan of that shape. It reminds me of an Aria (I think it was - only about 4% sure tongue.gif) I played in the summer at a friends house though smile.gif
